Sue is passionate about girls’ education and giving girls the best possible start in life. She describes her girls as confident but not arrogant and sees her role as enabling the girls to turn their dreams and aspirations into reality. She has a realistic view of the world that they will enter and therefore feels very strongly about the need to work with parents – describing this as the pincer-like approach – and regularly invites parents into school to discuss current parenting issues such as social networking sites, how best to support your daughter through the teenage years and how to prepare for the demands and challenges of university selection.
Sue continues to teach and prioritises this as being hugely important. She also spends much of her time “walking the ship” so that she can talk to the girls and staff directly about “their” school and gaining ideas as to how to improve it yet further.
